CHAPTER 5MANAGING SCOPE
In this part, I describe methods, tools, and techniques for managing the six project management functions: scope, organization, quality, cost, time, and the risk that pervades them all. The aim of these six functions is to undertake the work of the project and to deliver the desired performance improvement at a time and a cost that provides value for the sponsor. That is, they are about managing the performance of the project, and the asset it produces. I start with scope. The next four chapters deal with the other five functions.
Scope management is mandatory; without scope management there is no project. It can be defined as the process of ensuring that
An adequate, or sufficient, amount of work is done.
